    Word on the street is Rebekah Kolstad is out first game next season as a result of late game penalty against Wisconsin in WCHA semifinal.

    She sure deserved that one....

    After watching Bob Morris, I'm pretty convinced any team in the wcha could win the cha title.

    Ya, the CHA is sort of between D2 caliber and D1. This is the conference Holy Cross should join as their women's team officially goes up to D1 status next fall. They would have a chance to be competitive right awawy.

    Re: WCHA 2016-17 Season

    The equivalent of the women's CHA on the men's side is Atlantic Hockey, where you usually need to win the conference tournament to get into the NCAA Tournament.....which gives all those teams a chance, a good thing. Sadly this year that is also the case with the "new" WCHA men's conference, which after realignment is just a shadow of its former self.

    I wonder if SOME day we may see something similar develop with the women, should two additional Big Ten schools announce D1 programs. The most likely would be Michigan and Michigan State, and possibly Notre Dame which is joining the Big Ten men's conference next season. If that were to ever happen, we'd have:

    Big Ten
    Minnesota
    Wisconsin
    Ohio State
    Penn State
    Michigan
    Michigan State, and/or possibly
    Notre Dame

    WCHA
    Minnesota-Duluth
    North Dakota
    St. Cloud State
    Bemidji State
    Minnesota State
    (under this scenario the WCHA and CHA conferences would each need an additional member to receive an automatic NCAA bid, unless they were to combine)

    Hard to predict the future decades out, but in the near-term (next 10 years?) I don't foresee the kind of conference realignment that we've seen on the men's side, which is probably a good thing for most schools.

    Give the huge lift B16 has given UM and UW we can only hope the Michigan schools and Notre Dame never ever get women's hockey

    The only way this would work is if they join the wcha. Going B6 in women's hockey would be a disaster.

    I agree. We've had seasons tickets to the men's games for over 25 years, but are not going to renew next season. Don't like the B16. Don't like the $200 gift/donation. Miss the games with the WCHA teams and dare I say especially the hated "Sioux." There was nothing wrong with the format they had with Michigan and Michigan State. And in full disclosure, it's getting tougher for us to attend two hockey games when the men and women play the same day.

    Getting a B16 conference for women's hockey would be a disaster IMHO.

    Your squad actually put up more goals in home games against Minnesota and Duluth this year than Robert Morris. Does that mean Robert Morris would have finished second in the WCHA?

    Of course not, it's not the score that tells me any team in the wcha could win the cha title, it's my eyes that tell me (bear in mind I've seen UW play every wcha team a minimum of twice, plus Cornell and Clarkson twice). I'm not saying MSU or Bemidji would dominate the cha, but my eyes tell me they can beat Robert Morris, and they are the best the cha has to offer.

    Comparing the average scores throughout the season, rather than cherry-picking just the two games, would lead to a very different conclusion.

    Don't mean to pile on, but on the chance that you weren't being facetious (no emoticon) I find it a little other worldly to think that Robert Morris could have possibly gone 1-3-1 (UMD) or 1-1-2 (UM) this year let alone allowed fewer goals in two away games to that team across the river from us. It brings to mind one of my favorite Everly Brothers songs though.

    Fishing has been pretty good for EF1 today...

    It was stranger that Wisconsin only won 4 of 9 games despite outscoring Minnesota and UMD 27-12.

    Robert Morris had a neutral site tie against Clarkson. Minnesota gets Clarkson neutral site this week-end.

    hey cherry picker
    not when you consider the scores of two of the wins accounted for 16 of those goals
    throw out those two games it is 11-10 and a 2-2-3 record

    Correct. Wisconsin had the misfortune of not spreading out the collective beat down.
